Paco’s Tacos & Tequila offers big Texas flavor in Charlotte’s SouthPark neighborhood. FS Food Group founder Frank Scibelli traveled Texas with Tex-Mex culinary expert and cookbook author Robb Walsh in order to uncover the secrets of authentic Tex-Mex recipes, and the attention to detail shines through in the bold flavors of each dish. A variety of spices that season Paco’s dishes are imported from a Texas-based company, and a tortilla machine creates fresh tortillas daily.

From the Wood-Fired Grilled Fajitas to the Cheese Enchiladas with chili con carne, Paco’s menu showcases the freshest quality ingredients. Central to the dining experience is the bar, which features more than 85 tequila varieties, several outstanding wines and a selection of beers from Texas, Mexico and North Carolina. No need to travel to Texas for your fix-join us for lunch or dinner seven days a week and see why Paco’s is always the hot spot!

Always a great place to eat. Great tequila selection. I want whole pieces of meat in my tacos, not little diced ones. Still one of my favorites. My wife would eat there everyday.

Second time. Just as good as the first time. Great food, great service (thanks james) it's a little loud but that's only because it's always packed. I'll be back.

Went for Valentine’s Day and it was great. The waitress was very attentive, personable and kind. I’m a vegan and they were able to accommodate me. I got the veggie fajitas with no sour cream, butter or cheese. The margarita was amazing. Would definitely go back.

This place never disappoints. Once again we had a great meal and our service was wonderful. We eat here at least twice a month. We tend to always order the same thing - an order of guac (which is made at your table) and we split an order of chicken fajitas.

Our table was ready upon arrival. Our server was very nice, but took a while to bring things. The food was lacking in flavor, though the presentation was ok. We were just not impressed, and this is the 2nd time we have dined here.

Good Mexican food in a fun (lively) atmosphere. We arrived to a very crowded restaurant at 8:45 pm! I judge a place on their chips and salsa & margaritas so this was a great meal. Love the decor. Good (not outstanding) service but no complaints either. Right near Southpark so convenient location.

My husband and I came there for Queen Fest and order the special. The drinks Marg. was really bad so we didn't drink them and ordered a better one and not we did not know their were 18.00 a piece. Those were no good either. We love a good Marg and this was this the worst we have ever had. along with the Taco dinner. We came there do to the fact we love Mama Ricottas and always visit there for dinner when in Charlotte. We have NEVER had a bad dinner there. Maybe it was due to the fact of Queen Fest. The Managers called us and our sending a dinner to Mama Ricottas.

Hands down I think this is the best value I’ve ever witnessed for a restaurant week menu. The wait staff was great and there was a ton of food. My girlfriend absolutely raved about the guacamole and loved that they make it table side and she could request no onions. We will be back for sure!

Paco's Tacos food is delish. I always get the big salad - it is not healthy but great flavors. I wish they had more of a craft cocktail selection (all the margaritas are tequila based and I don't drink tequila) and they only carry one cider.

Was here to celebrate my birthday with friends. Food was good. Felt that for the money we got a lot of food. Noise level was a bit loud but I wasn't there for a romantic dinner so it was ok. Enjoyed the restaurant week menu. Would eat here again if in the area

Overall good but we waited way longer than expected for our reservation. We got sat around 30 mins after our reservation and we had somewhere to go that made us late. When we first walked in we were told it would be just a few mins. Then we asked again and was told it would be very soon. Asked again and was told it was gonna be a while. I asked how much longer min wise and the girl asked the other hostess and told us we could get sat now. Very confusing.
